Feast Day of Pope St. Callistus I
Today is the feast day of St. Callistus. St. Callistus was pope back in the 3rd century, and was martyred in Rome around 223 during the rule of Emperor Severus. The only account written of him is by St. Hippolytus (first anti-pope; Hippolytus is honored as a saint because he repented and died as a martyr in the mines of Sardinia). Callistus is the patron saint of cemetery workers.
Pope St. Callistus I, pray for us.
